New Brookside Shop to Explore: Design in the City

 

 

You may have noticed a new shop along 63rd St in Brookside:  Design in the City has moved into the former Reading Reptile location.  This is the second location for Design in the City; the first one is in Briarcliff.

 

 

 

 

Proprietor Mindy Diaz told me there were two reasons she chose this spot:  many of her customers wanted a 'south' location, and her best friend is Pam DiCappo, who owns Lauren Alexander next door.  She felt her lines of clothing and accessories would complement the other shops in the area.  This is a store you will love browsing in--everything is so  beautifully displayed! Jackets, pants, tops, purses, boots, hats and jewelry catch your eye at every turn.  Her most popular lines include Tart Collections, Sanctuary and Chaser Brand for clothing; she also has jewelry from Simon Sebbag, Kendra Scott and Tat2.  You'll also find some fun gift and decor items here: pillows, party accessories, greeting cards, wall hangings, etc.  And of course, personal, friendly service is always present.

 

Mindy's background is in interior design. She worked for her Dad in a building supplies business for many years; then took some time off to raise her son.  She got the itch to go back to work and opened a home furnishings store in Parkville.  Then she switched to selling clothes when opening the Briarcliff store.  She loves having a store in Brookside because of the "amazing neighbors who support locally owned businesses".

 

If you haven't stopped by Design in the City yet--mark your calendar for their Grand Opening this week:  Friday Sept 29 from 5-8pm.  Regular store hours are 10am-6pm Monday through Saturday.  Find Design in the City on Facebook and Instagram at design_in_the_city.
